We enrolled our infant in this school about 4 months ago and it was one of the best decisions we have made. During the tour the staff were very welcoming, and let us visit every classroom and observe, and gave a chance to talk with the teachers. We spent the most time in the infant room as thats where our daughter would start. The infant teacher, Ms.Mattie, is very experienced and made my daughter smile, giggle and play around within minutes. The infant room is always very clean, and babies are happy. The room is very colorful and always has a 'happy' feeling. Now 4 months into the school, and our little girl has developed so much, the pacifier is history (was within the first week!), has transitioned from a bottle to a sippy cup, and onto a glass. She even naps on a cot now and she is only 15 months. Ms Mattie has taken care of her like a mother would, keeping her clean and always paying very close attention to her eczema prone skin - taking the necessary precautions at the first sign of itchiness. Our daughter adores the assistant teacher - Ashanti and is usually asking for her as soon as we drop her off. We are so glad to have found this school! We highly recommend CGMA!
We have been extremely happy about our daughter's progress right from the time we put her in CGMA. Her language skills, interaction with everyone around her, her diet has tremendously been influenced upon by CGMA. We are very fortunate to have put her in such a great Montessori institution. Our daughter, will remember CGMA as an once in a lifetime schooling experience which we're sure, she wouldn't get anywhere. We would say that she has learnt some of her most important skills for her age only here at CGMA. She behaves more mature now and wishes to be treated like one too. Thanks to the efforts of the teachers she now eats her own food rather than being spoon fed like she was when she came here first. CGMA teachers helped my child to become a well rounded person. The communication with parents is exceptional.
Both my son and daughter attend their Primary program and I am very happy with what they have learnt in the past 2 years! Teachers are very pleasant and encourage a positive reinforcement with their students.
